Jagaddhatri literally means ‘holder (dhatri) of the world (jagat)’. She is another form of Durga. Hence in the hymns, the Goddess is always referred to as ‘Jagadhatri Durga’. Jagaddhatri is depicted as the color of the morning sun, three-eyed and four-faced, holding a chakra. Conch, bow and arrow, red, clad in bright jewels and a serpent as the sacred thread. She rides a lion and stands on a dead elephant (called Karindrasura, a demon). According to Ramakrishna, Jagaddhatri arises in the heart of a person who can control the raging elephant, called mind. Jagaddhatri Puja starts on Ashtami Tithi and ends on Dashami. But the date is determined by the luni-solar calendar (about a month after Durga Puja).

When was Jagadhatri Puja first held?
According to mythology, after killing Mahisasu, the gods were intoxicated with joyous festivities. Even though Goddess Durga killed the Asura, since he is the manifestation of the collective power of the Gods, the Gods thought that the achievement was theirs. Seeing this behavior of the gods, the goddess placed a piece of grass in front of them. None of the gods Indra, Vayu, Agni and Varuna could destroy that fragment.
Why do we do Jagadhatri Puja?
At this time, a quadrangular figure of Paramasundari appeared in front of the gods, she was Jagaddhatri. Then the demigods got confused and accepted Goddess Jagaddhatri as the best of all powers. Its popularity increased after Nadia Raja Krishnachandra Roy introduced this worship in his capital Krishnanagar in the 18th century. Seeing the Rajbari puja, Indranarayan of Hooghly district started this puja in the lower part of Laxmiganj Chaulapatti in Chandannagar.
Which place is famous for Jagadhatri Puja?
